Homemade Bug Habitats


Supplies:
Empty food container
Marker
Something to cut with
rubber band
1 knee high panty hose

Draw three circles on the sides of your container and cut them out. Have someone help by stretching the panty hose knee high out while you carefully push in the container. This will take two people. Work carefully!

This is what it should look like when you are done. The little cuff is handy when you have a bug in your hand. Simply put your hand in the hole, the bug will be in your hand, pull the knee high up your arm and open your hand. Once the bug is released you can slowly pull your hand out. This was such a neat bonus. I can't tell you how often the boys will lose a hard won buggy friend because they get out of the habitat when they try to put it in.

After your little visitors are inside twist up the end of the knee high and fasten with the rubber band.
